A buttocks lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the shape and appearance of the buttocks by removing excess skin and fat and lifting and contouring the underlying tissue. This procedure is suitable for individuals who are unhappy with the appearance of their buttocks due to various reasons such as weight loss, aging, or genetics.
Losing a significant amount of weight can cause the skin on the buttocks to lose elasticity, resulting in sagging and a loss of volume. This can create an unbalanced or disproportionate appearance, which can be improved through a buttocks lift. Additionally, as people age, the skin on the buttocks can lose elasticity, resulting in the same issues of sagging and a loss of volume. The underlying muscle and tissue may also weaken and shift, which can further contribute to a saggy or flat appearance. A buttocks lift can help to restore volume, lift, and contour to the buttocks, creating a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to having flat or saggy buttocks, regardless of their weight or age. This can create feelings of self-consciousness and dissatisfaction with their appearance. A buttocks lift can create more rounded, lifted, and shapely buttocks, improving overall body proportions and enhancing one’s natural curves.
Good candidates for a buttocks lift are typically individuals who are in good overall health, have maintained a stable weight for at least six months, and have specific concerns about the appearance of their buttocks. They may feel self-conscious about their buttocks being saggy or flat, or desire a more aesthetically pleasing shape and contour. Individuals seeking a buttock lift may feel self-conscious or dissatisfied with their current appearance, making them feel less confident or attractive. Some individuals may feel that their buttocks do not complement their body shape or clothing, and they may desire a more balanced or proportionate figure. Overall, a buttocks lift can be a transformative procedure that can improve the shape and appearance of the buttocks, but it is important to carefully consider one’s goals and consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to determine if a butt lift procedure is the right choice for you.
During a buttock lift consultation, the patient discusses their goals and expectations for the procedure. At this time, Dr. Ortiz evaluates the candidate’s medical history, current health status, and physical condition to determine if they are a good candidate for the surgery. Once cleared for surgery, the patient is placed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation to ensure they are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure. The surgeon will then make incisions in the buttock crease, where the scars will be well-hidden. The length and shape of the incision depend on the amount of excess skin to be removed. The surgeon will remove excess skin and fat from the buttocks and surrounding areas, as necessary. The remaining tissue is then lifted and contoured to create a more aesthetically pleasing shape and contour. Dr. Ortiz then carefully closes the incisions with sutures to minimize scarring. Following the surgery, the patient is monitored in a recovery room and will typically spend 30-60 minutes in recovery before being discharged. The surgeon will provide detailed instructions on how to care for the incisions and will prescribe medication to manage any pain or discomfort.
